storm that this president has led us through. he came into office facing the worst wall street collapse in decades. a jobless rate spiking in the double digits. republicans sitting under their desks saying no, no, this can't be happening, every step that the president took to regulate wall street, reform health care, equalize pay between the sexists to end the war in iraq and of course to cut off al qaeda's head. this has brought so many storms, both natural and manmade stands on post near the same situation room where he directed the killing of bin laden. he's the officer in charge through perilous times. the eye of the storm is expected to make landfall in southern new jersey or delaware within the hour. it will battle the northeast into tomorrow. wind gusts between 60 and 80 miles per hour have been reported along the coast. all the way from massachusetts down to mare land. winds will get stronger throughout the night. it's caused massive damage. in atlantic city, part of the boardwalk is gone that we all grew up with. widespread flooding with parts of ocean city, maryland, and delaw

see the thread collected, the language urser used, the way they talk about the president, not as a democrat, not as a liberal, not as someone they disagree with, but someone about whom the very person is wrong for the office somehow. what do you think they're talking about? endlessly. >> exactly. and this is about over and over again tweaking the archie bunker crowd. this is about that angry guy, we all known him in the neighborhood, because, look, if this was just about barack obama or his policies, colin powell wouldn't magically get sucked into it, too. we wouldn't be hearing sarah palin talking about shucking and jiving. how much more obvious do they have to be? this is about trying to run up romney's numbers among low information blue collar white voters, particularly older white voters who are already uncomfortable with the idea of this guy being in the white house. not a democrat being in the white house, this democrat. this president. the person of barack obama is what is offensive to old cranks like john sununu who, by the way, hasn't had an intelligent thought s

late and much respected colleague tim russert used to say, numbers, numbers, numbers, and that's what this election comes down do, who gets that 270 electoral votes and who doesn't. what's fascinating this year is what numbers seem to matter most in deciding voters and how they do vote. two numbers jump out at me this election year. the first, which got famous months ago, is 1%. that top, the people making the most, getting the best breaks on taxes and other things. the second number that just broke out recently is 47%. it's that part of america that mitt romney has dismissed as freeloaders, moochers, takers in his words. i'm joined by howard fineman with "the huffington post." also we have romney's -- let's take a look at this howard, romney's 47% comments had a lasting impact on his standing.

" when somebody broke the rules. when is mitt romney going to tell us what he really thinks, really beliefs, thinks voters have a right to know about what he does if he gets into the white house? will he let people languish in the emergency room, all 40 million of the uninsured, which is his official position, or is he going to do something nice for those people? will he push the right wing agenda on abortion rights, dumping planned parenthood funding, picking right wing judges for the supreme court or do what he said yesterday, nothing, nothing at all. have you nothing to fear. nothing at all, he said. i don't think romney wants anybody to know what his plans are. he wants to keep the middle calmly believing he doesn't intend to do any of that mean stuff he promises to do when he sits down with the right wing folks on whom he said is hard. joining me is michele richards now volunteering for the obama campaign, and david jones from mother corn author of "47% ". >> the latest gallup tracking poll shows obama leading romney 50/45, but among likely voters they're tied 48%. net two-poin

republican president, a catastrophic loss of jobs, a collapse in the u.s. stock market, the death rattle of the auto industry. he, barack obama, then brought a financial and economic collapse back from the brink, changed the course of the economy from job destruction to job creation, doubled the american stock market, saved the auto industry. he did it all with a dramatic change of policy, a stimulus program that varied 180 degrees from the austerity measures that have humbled europe. an intervention into the auto industry that reinvigorated an industry that means pride to americans. obama needs to make this defense, he needs to underline the fact that his opponent and his party fought him every inch of the way. on the stimulus, on the auto industry, on health care, on equal pay for women, and that it disagrees on fundamental ways on the future course of american economic policy. on health care, on medicare, on social security, on equal pay for women. he has got to both defend and also hold his opponent accountable for his and his party's obstructionism from the first day he took office.
